..At my place they sit near windows and make the most irritating sound , would love to see a solution. I hope Americans soon start futures on pigeon shit so that some monetary benefit is there
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

I strung wire over the top of my a/c unit and that seemed to work. Prior to that I had a scary looking toy gorilla sitting on the top of it and the eyes scared them away. The only thing that is effective really is a sort of wire with spikes and they can't land on it, but this is not appropriate for a verandah. Could use it on a roof however.

Some kind of scary eyed creature might keep them away from the verandah.

We have them in our airwells and they wake me up in the morning as they 'talk' to each other. I don't mind too much because they are like an alarm clock.
Every cloud has a silver lining!

Taking care of the cat poop and her other vulgar habits would be a pain

I've noticed people here in San Francisco putting up fake owls near the places pigeons like to hang out.

If you get a fake owl for the roof that also moves, I am told that does do wonders. Climbing that high on a ladder is a challenge. Something that gave me one week of fantastic relief from the flying rats was a friend bringing by a falcon. It was an astonishing sight to see a small bird take down a huge pidgeon. However, my friend was concerned about reactions to the slow killing of the bird in front of children..

Check out these Scarecrow Gizmos. We've used similar ones successfully in the past for scaring away deer from the flower gardens. As soon as the sensor detects the intruder within 'range' - it unloads it's water reservoir onto them.

On behalf of the pigeons, I'd like to say that this is most unfair. We gather on your house, soothe you with gentle coo-ing noises, and this is the gratitude we get! It makes us sick.

We're half inclined to just go somewhere else.

But no... we don't need thanks, we will not be deterred from our selfless work...

Pigeons! Turn up the coo-ing; he needs soothing!

ROFL.

Personally, I'd be happy to see them on someone else's house and not mine. The smell is beastly.
